* ''Literature/CodexAlera has this dynamic going between High Lords Antillus and Phrygius. Antillus makes remarks that are hilariously self-evident or embarrassingly wrong, Phrygius sighs, rolls his eyes and gives him the ol' DopeSlap. Made even more hilarious by the fact that both men are in their fifties, insanely powerful [[MagicByAnyOtherName furycrafters]] and belong to the top echelon of Alera's political elite.

* On ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'', Natsumi frequently refers to Keroro as ''boke-gaeru'' (usually translated as "stupid frog"). Episode 18 of the series involves Natsumi being [[OvernightAgeUp turned into an adult]] and given a KansaiRegionalAccent by Kururu's latest inventions, so she can perform ''manzai'' in a beauty pageant/comedy contest.

* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya's'' and Kyon's actions toward one another appear to be a version of this comedy routine- at least in the first season and first light novel. Haruhi makes some outlandish remark, and Kyon comments on how it doesn't makes sense, often to himself or someone else.

* In ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'', doubles partners Hikaru "Dabide" Amane and Harukaze "Bane-san" Kurobane from Rokkaku frequently pull these off. More often than not, ''boke'' Dabide makes some rather bad word puns, and ''tsukkomi'' Bane kicks him ''on the head'' as a punishment. That even happens during matches, where Bane [[ArmorPiercingSlap slaps]] Dabide across the face if he's slacking.

* The relationship between best friends Nozomi and Rin in ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'' is not unlike that of a BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine. Nozomi is an [[TheDitz optimistic idiot]] who is always trying to [[JumpedAtTheCall Jump At The Call]] while Rin is a [[GrumpyBear sensible realist]] who always points out the gaping flaws in Nozomi's plans. Usually along the lines of:
-->'''Nozomi:''' I want to do [activity]!
-->'''Rin:''' You were kicked out of the school's [activity] club after three days.
-->'''Nozomi:''' You don't have to mention ''that!''

** [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] in episode 17 of ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''. The entire main cast signs up to act in the manzai contest with two tsukkomis and three bokes (one of them being TheComicallySerious to the point where she has NoSenseOfHumor) just acting their normal selves. '''Nothing''' goes AllAccordingToPlan between all the mistimed punchlines, so [[{{Dojikko}} Miyuki]] calls a timeout only to trip on her way off stage. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akm2PFAcH-0 Can be seen here, beginning at the 50-second mark]].
* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugi,'' HotBlooded Tasuki and his best friend Kouji go into these sometimes.

*** Chisame takes on this role physically when dealing with [[CrazyAwesome Jack Rakan]] although most of the time its usually a [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v27/c249/6.html knee to the face]] instead of an actual fan [[spoiler:(He could take a Nuke and probably not feel it)]]. They make [[spoiler: (made)]] a very good team.

* Happens quite often in Grisaia no Kajitsu. Usually, being the serious guy he is, Yuuji plays the tsukkomi, especially when talking to Machina or Michiru, though between his habit of interpreting situations as what they might have implied if he were at work, and his tendency to be a total smartass, he often plays boke as well.

* In the Japanese PS3 version of ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'', fairy comedians Smiley and Surly are this kind of comedy duo. (In fact, ''all'' fairies seem to be Kansai-accented comedians to the point where their souls are literally ''made of comedy.'') In the dub, although there's still shades of their manzai roots (they still have an obvious StraightManAndWiseGuy dynamic, and they decide to act out a scene), it's been [[{{Woolseyism}} localized]] as a dry [[BritCom British comedy-style sketch]] in the vein of ''MontyPython''.

* Creator/RickyGervais (tsukkomi) and KarlPilkington (boke) have this exact dynamic in their routines on ''Radio/TheRickyGervaisShow''. Karl, an "idiot", is brought in and asked to talk about various SeinfeldianConversation topics, which soon derail into [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} total nonsense]], at which point Ricky corrects him by shouting "[[CatchPhrase Don't. Talk. Shit.]]"
